We, at Swaniti, believe that it is important to work with the STATE when it comes to solving development issues. In order to increase awareness about improving health outcomes in general and malnutrition in particular,amongst the elected officials from across the state, Swaniti hosted more than 40 MLAs for Knowledge Consultations including information sharing on best practices in better performing states in India. We, would be following it up with credible programs in constituency with progressive MLAs.
